Same with Jerry and Donna on THEO. Great show. The Paramont is now the Schnitzer and houses Portland's Symphony. An absolutely beautiful venue. Nice acoustics too.

THEO? They Hate Each Other??


The last photo from one of the Day on the Greens looks like a mic rig crucifix.

And did you notice that the teen girl fixing the mic appears to be wearing a crucifix? Come to think of it, the guy on the bottom left bears a strange resemblance to Jesus himself... gazing towards heaven. OK, now I'm FREAKING OUT!!!!!

Happy Friday DR71

haha is this the famous cross that a reviewer mentions in a review of 10/9 (or maybe 10/10) in Deadbase 10? Funny story about his friend, as well as the guy with the cross, getting busted by BG security for taping. Though we have full auds of both shows, don't we? So I guess somebody got away with it.

As for 6/3/76, I like it! Great second set jams. The show does take a while to get going, though, the first set is rather standard. It has that "sleepy electricity" common of 1976. I really like 76 overall, it really has it's own unique sound. A lot of people call it "slow" or "laid back," but a lot of it is actually pretty speedy to me. The tempos in Let it Grow and Eyes for example, are much faster than what we saw in 73/74. And the Dancin's get pretty speedy at times as well. And the newer stuff like Lazy Lightning is pretty fast paced and intense. On the other side of that you have the slowed down versions of FOTD, yet slightly faster versions of High Time than we saw in 69/70. I also rather enjoy the sleepy, spacey, ethereal versions of Slipknot! from the year.

Yet, somehow, I still agree that much of 76, esp this show, are rather laid-back. But laid-back doesn't have to be a BAD thing, right?
